Sabotaged the 10k race by drinking on a camping trip for 2 days prior to the race. Started the race at 6:25m/m pace and the fifth mile split drifted out to 7:10 pace so I quit. So a DNF for me. Mentally and physically not at the races. Marathon June 15th. Going to be sensible for that one.
You've got me thinking though Sean. I'll judge what pace nearer the day I think.
No crowds at the Littledown Marathon. 26x1 mile grass loop plus a little bit with no more than 100 runners.
Sean it's my first marathon and I don't want to cross the finish line in bits. I've another marathon in October and that's the 'A' race.
Yeah my goal was 3:15 but I've changed the goal to sub 3:30.
